Musou Missives: Orochi 3 Officer Ability List

Okay, so now that we have an open mind about teams in Warriors Orochi 3, let’s take a look at the first major crux of team building: Officer abilities.

As I explained before, Officer abilities are sets of abilities that typically affect the entire party, and add some kind of benefit. Impact regenerates musou for every 100 KO’s, Impulse increases the team’s movement speed, Efficacy increases damage done to officers, etc.

Knowing what the abilities do and finding ones that complement your team’s capabilities, as well as your own, leads to an overall stronger team and more satisfying experience most of the time.

Thankfully, most of these abilities are shared among a collection of the cast, so if there’s a particular ability you like, you won’t be restricted to just one character that has it (although there are exceptions).

Unfortunately, the game doesn’t make it very easy to look up what each of these abilities do, or who has them, or easy ways to keep them straight (what’s the difference between Stamina, Fortitude, and Potence again?). I had to make a list for myself to keep these straight, so below I have posted a list of what each ability does, as well as a table showing the cast members that use them. Feel free to use the Crtl +F function to find the character or power you’re looking for.

Next time, I’ll be looking at team building strategies, so stay tuned for that as well.

(Note: Since I do not have a copy of the Wii U version, Momiji and Shennong are excluded from this list. If someone can provide me with information on these characters I will gladly update it.)

Next installment, I’ll get into building team strategies using this information.
